Spring 2020 Seminar Series

PPSM sponsors a series of seminars covering a broad range of topics of general interest to the polymer community, featuring speakers from both on and off campus. We invite the polymer community at MIT and elsewhere to participate. For further information, contact Professor Niels Holten-Andersen at holten@mit.edu.

All talks take place on Wednesdays

If you would like to receive Tuesday and Wednesday email announcements of the next upcoming PPSM seminar, please email your request including your email address to:  ppsm-www@mit.edu

SPRING 2020 PPSM SEMINAR SERIES SUSPENDED 

Starting with our March 18th event, due to COVID-19 concerns all remaining PPSM Seminars and the April 8th MIT Polymer Day event have been cancelled.

We regret this unfortunate necessity but look forward to presenting a full calendar of exciting guest speakers in Fall 2020 (including as many as possible of the three cancelled Spring 2020 speakers), after the current public health crisis subsides.

Guest speakers please watch for an email announcement from PPSM DIrector Prof. Alfredo Alexander-Katz.

We are also working on a Fall 2020 date for the cancelled April 8th MIT Polymer Day event–please stay tuned for that information later in the Spring.

Please direct any questions about the PPSM Seminar Series to: ppsm-www@mit.edu
